Storyline

Before CNN, cam-corders, and communications satellites, the only way to view exotic locales was on real film that might take weeks or months to arrive from the far corners of the world. The raison d'etre for this program was to bring that film to the television viewer. Each week some adventurer would be asked to narrate his 16 mm home movies for the viewing audience. The film might be from the Amazon jungle or the arctic regions of northern Alaska. Teenage boys were drawn to the show not only by the adventure but also by the occasional fleeting glimpse of some native woman's bare breast. Written by Thomas McWilliams <tgm@netcom.com>

Exotic home movies
9 February 2008 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

This was a combined travelogue/adventure show in which the host, (John Stevenson, on the tape I saw, part of the "Classic Television" series from PBS), interviewed people who had been to some exotic part of the world with a camera and showed the results to the audience. This one was about skin-diving, spear fishing and water skiing in California and Mexico. It's kind of reminiscent of the home movie excerpts Jack Paar used to do of his travels on his shows or of the Errol Flynn documentary "Cruise of the Zaca". The preview of the next episode sounds better than this one: a some Chinese sailors sail a "junk" to Tokyo and on to San Francisco. The crew wasn't even experienced seamen.
